Uganda Delight

 

LAKE MBURO N. PARK - QUEEN ELIZABETH N. PARK - BWINDI NATIONAL PARK [ BY ROAD ]

Arrive in Uganda, and check in at your Kampala hotel. Lunch is included. In the afternoon, spend time exploring Kampala City and its surroundings.

 

Uganda Delight ChimpsDay 1 ::  Kampala – L. Mburo National Park //.. (4 hours)

Depart at 07:30 hrs. Drive southwest to L. Mburo with a stop over break at the equator. Arrive for lunch.  Afternoon boat ride and trip to a fishing village, followed by evening game-drive. Lying in the one part of Uganda covered in extensive acacia woodland, Mburo has markedly different fauna to other parks and reserves. Lake Mburo is the best place in the country to see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as zebra, waterbuck, Klipspringer and the rare topi, impala, and several acacia – associate birds.   The five lakes within the park attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of waterbirds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek.  Mburo is the closest national park to Kampala and offers a refreshing stopover when travelling to or from the western parks and reserves. Dinner at the Mantana Tented Camp.

 

Day 2 :: L. Mburo  -  Queen Elizabeth National Park //.. ( 5 hours)

Breakfast is followed by a morning safari walk. Lunch at the Mantana Tented Camp, then drive through volcanic formations of the Western Rift Valley towards the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The descent reveals a stunning panorama of Lakes George and Edward amidst game-filled plains. Your first game-drive is en route to the lodge.  Dinner and overnight at the Mweya Safari Lodge, or similar.

 

Uganda Delight BirdsDay 3 ::  Queen Elizabeth National Park //..

Early morning game-drive in the park, followed by mid-morning safari walk and lunch at the lodge. In the evening, proceed for a unique 2-hour boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel and into Lake Edward. The trip passes through possibly the highest hippo concentration in Africa and many mammals may be seen drinking at the water's edge. The cruise offers an excellent platform for photography and game viewing. The birdlife is colourful and abundant. For dinner and overnight return to Mweya Safari Lodge that is beautifully situated on a bluff overlooking the Kazinga Channel and Lake Edward.  Queen Elizabeth National Park's diverse Eco-system of grassy plains, tropical forest, rivers, swamps, lakes and volcanic craters is home to an incredible abundance of wildlife.  Game drives in this park, with the massive Rwenzoris as a backdrop provides excellent opportunities to see lion, leopard, giant forest hog, cape buffalo, elephants, defassa waterbuck, Uganda Kob, Topi and bush buck. These two game drives and the boat trip are a memorable method of discovering a vast array of Ugandan wildlife.

 

Day 4 :: Queen Elizabeth – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest //.. (5 hours)

Early morning departure with lunch boxes to Kyambura Gorge, visitors can climb through tropical forest and catch a glimpse of a variety of primates, including chimpanzee. Drive on southwards via Ishasha through savannah grasslands to end up seeing banana plantations and herds of Ankole cattle with their incredibly long curving horns. A stopover is planned on the route at Savana Hotel. You then ascend into the Kigezi highlands, known as the "Switzerland of Africa", with terraced farming and mountain scenery.  Check in at your camp in Bwindi – done for the day.

 

Uganda Delight ElephantDay 5 ::  Bwindi Impenetrable Forest //..

After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure.  The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular.  The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but criss-crossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long savored. Many find it to be a rare and moving opportunity.

 

Day 6  :: Bwindi – Kampala //.. (9 – 10 hours)

Sadly return to Kampala with great memories of and moments spent with the fascinating Mountain Gorilla. You will have a stopover in Mbarara for lunch. We arrive at Kampala close to dinner time. Dinner and overnight: Kampala Serena Hotel.

Good Manners for Gorilla Watchers

  • Keep your voice down or be quiet. You will see and hear if you do.
  • Don't point or waive your arms- this can be seen as a threat. Move slowly.
  • If approached by a gorilla, back away slowly to keep 5m separation.
  • Don't use flash, this could threaten the gorillas and bother other visitors.
